Silicone Finger Prosthesis - An Aesthetic Treatment Option for Partial Finger Amputation: Case Report

Dr. Rahulkumar R. Patel, Dr. Kinjal Solanki, Dr. Ina Patel

The unfortunate loss of all or part of a finger caused by traumatic amputation may have a negative impact on physical and psychological well-being of a person. An esthetic prosthesis can offer psychological, functional, and rehabilitative advantages. One of the major problems with the prosthetic replacement of a partially amputated finger is inadequate retention of the prosthesis. There are numerous means by which we can enhance the retention. And the most routinely used are adhesives, adhesive tape, magnets, and implants. The present article describes a technique which utilizes passive vacuum fit and mechanical aid such as ring for retention. Such treatment can be opted for in cases of financial constraints.
